Standing in Motion
The Silver Man at Kalakaua and Kaiulani is my favorite of the metal men in Waikiki. He is out on the corner more often than the others and he works with a friendly demeanor. He stands in stillness most of the time, but when he moves (after a tip in his bucket), he is warm, open to selfies, and intent on making kids smile. With the straightest metal man face, he shakes hands, waves, flashes shakas, and most of all, works his silver butt off. If you see him, drop him a dollar or few will ya?
